Plcdsc read before eoiisiiliiui:^ the Catalogue. 

It is a distinctive feature of this Catalogue that it separates the no- 
tices of the dece ised from those of the living, arranging the former by 
themselves in the order in which the deaths occurred. This plan has 
its disadvantages as well as its advantages. That it renders possible 
the stereotyping of the Necrological list, in some future edition, when 
it shall have been made as complete, up to date, as it is ever likely to be, 
seemed to the compiler a decisive consideration. As long as a man is 
living, his record is subject to change, and is therefore not ready to stereo- 
type. Under this view of the case, the names of the deceased, in the 
few instances where the date of death has not been at least approxi- 
mately ascertained, have been placed in the Class lists and not in the 
Necrology. 

With some variations, each full notice consists of two or three parts, 
viz : first, statistics of personal history ; second, statistics of profes- 
sional services ; third, special statistics. In the professional statistics, 
the name of a place is that of a field of labor, and presumably, a field 
in which the man is a pastor or acting pastor. Wherever the case is 
known to be otherwise, the design has been to indicate it. 

The design has been to insert the names of all persons who, at any 
known date, have been trustees, treasurers, professors or students of 
Auburn ; and to insert each name in all the lists to which it belongs. 
But \\\t full notice of each person appears in only one list. A reference 
to this is given in the other places where the name occurs. 

The full notice of men who deceased at a known date appears, in 
all instances, in the Necrological list. In the other lists, simply the 
name is given, with the date of death, the latter serving as a reference 
to the place of the full notice. 

The full notice of living men who have been students, appears in the 
list of Alumni. In the cases in which any of these have also been trus- 
tees, professors, or post graduates, only their names are given in these 
other lists, with a reference to the class to which they belonged. 

In the case of men who belonged to different classes in the Semi- 
nary, the full notice is given in the list of the class with which they 
graduated; but if they did not graduate here, usually in that of the 
class with which they were first connected. 



6 EXPLANATORY STATEMENTS. 

Those who pursued selected studies only are catalogued with the 
class with which they principally studied. 

As the fullest notice includes all the briefer ones, the latter are 
omitted in the references in the alphabetical index. 

Each class is catalogued in two alphabetical lists, the second of 
which contains the names of men of whom it is known that they did 
not graduate with the class, though they were at some time connected 
with it. In a few special instances, men who substantially completed 
the course have been listed as graduates, although they were not so, 
technically. 

In the Necrological list, the age at death is given by the nearest 
birthday, which is sometimes the last birthday, and sometimes not. 

When several successive fields of labor or places of residence are in 
the same State, the mention of the State is ordinarily omitted, except 
in the first of the successive items. The same method is adopted with 
names of religious denominations, and of modes of service. 

The Catalogue shows some lack of uniformity in the spelling of 
names of places. In most instances this is due to their being variously 
spelled by intelligent correspondents. There is also a great lack of 
uniformity in the matter of abbreviations, but this is the less important 
since no abbreviations are used except such as are self explaining. 

It is probable that some of the ordinations reported as by Congrega- 
tional Associations were actually either by Consociation, or by Council 
called within the limits of the Association named. 

The compiler has deemed it no part of his duty to publish a record 
of cases of di'^cipline, either by the Seminary authorities or by the va- 
rious ecclesiastical bodies to which the Auburn men have belonged. 
He has tried, however, so to adjust the record that it shall not appear 
to hold any ecclesiastical body responsible for men whom it has disfel- 
lowshiped. 

The compiler has taken especial pleasure in the record of those 
Alumni who did not enter the ministry, or who soon left it for other 
])ursuils. As good citizens and effective Christian workers, the larger 
number of these men need not blush to compare themselves with their 
clerical brethren. They are a standing and sufficient proof that a 
Theological education is not lost, even if its recipient turns out to have 
no call to the ministry. 

As to ''published works," the original idea was to include only vol- 
umes in this Catalogue The mention of pamphlets, articles, and other 
lesser works has been unsystematically and therefore unequally made. 
The compiler greatly regrets his lack of uniformity of plan in this matter. 

He also regrets that the necessary limitations of his work prevent 
the specific commemoration in it of certain large classes of the friends 
of the Seminary, or of certain important phases of the work which 
the Seminary has accomplished. As it now stands, it does not men- 
tion the founders of the Seminary, as such, nor its long roll of com- 
missioners from the Presbyteries, nor the generous men and women 
who have contributed to its endowment. Such of these men as were 
also trustees or treasurers or professors or students of Auburn, are, in- 
deed, mentioned in those characters, but, with a few exceptions, their

gifts and special services, either to Auburn or to other institutions, are 
not here recorded. 

The compiler has ke[jt in mind that this Catalogue is strictly a book 
of statistics He has carefully filed every scrap of information which 
has come into his possession, that it might be available for use in case 
any one should feel called upon to write a. voXwrna o( i/ie/)iorabiiia ; but 
he has refused to admit non-statistical material into the Catalogue. 
Had it been practicable, however, he would gladly have added the fol- 
lowing to the lists herein printed : 

First, a list of the founders and commissioners of the Seminary, in 
the order of their first terms of service. This should have included 
the persons who were present at the preliminary meetings, before the 
Board of Commissioners was organized, or who otherwise prominently 
participated in the founding of the Seminary, together with all the 
commissioners who have actually attended any meeting of the Board, 
a notice of all the years in which he attended being attached to the 
name of each one. If a commissioner has at any time been a student 
of the Seminary, or a trustee or professor or treasurer, it should have 
been noted, with date, in this list. If not, and if his relations to the 
Seminary were somewhat permanent, the list should have included 
statistics of him. Attached to this should have been the roll of the 
presidents, clerks, and stated clerks of the Commissioners, with their 
dates of service. 

Secondly, a list of the financial benefactors of the Seminary. This 
should have been, in form, less strictly statistical than the other parts 
of the Catalogue. It should have included some account of the vari- 
ous attempts to raise money, from the first, v^^ith the names of the finan- 
cial agents, salaried and unsalaried, who have been employed. To this 
should have been added the names of the principal donors, in the or- 
der of their first noted gifts. If the name of a donor occurs in the 
previous lists of the Catalogue, there should have been a reference to 
it, and if not, a brief statistical sketch. In this list it would have been 
possible to do that which could not be done in the other lists, namely, 
to make grateful and decorous acknowledgment of the beneficence of 
the men and women who have endowed the Seminary. It might have 
been completed by adding the history of the names of professorships, 
buildings, and halls in the old building, with other memorial names. 

Thirdly, there should have been a series of generalizations from the 
preceding lists ; for example, a complete list of works published by 
members of the Seminary ; a roll of foreign missionaries, and one of 
pioneer missionaries; a roll of pastorates exceeding 25 years; a roll 
of College and Seminary presidents and professors, and tables repre- 
senting 'he sources whence the Seminary has drawn its supply of stu- 
dents, and the fields whither it has distributed its graduates. 

These additions would have been of genuine statistical value. Nev- 
ertheless, in view of the current estimates of the worth of such work, 
the compiler is more afraid of being censured for having devoted too 
much time to it than too little. 

For accuracy and completeness, it is believed that this Catalogue will 
compare favorably with other works of the kind. But of course it is

Churches, to the librarians or others in charge of statistics in the Con- 
gregational House and in Williams, Amherst, Hamilton, Yale, Union,

large number of long-suffering clerks of Presbyteries, Associations, 
Sessions, Consistories, Churches, and of pastors ot Churches of various 
names, to very many of our Alumni, and of other men and women who 
love Auburn, and not least, to the patient, painstaking printers of the 
Advertiser office, the thanks of the compiler are due for help rendered 
him in his task.

GENERAL LISTS. 



TRUSTEES. 



Note. When the date of the death of a Trustee is given, the full 
notice of him will be found in the Necrological list, under that date. 
When only the Seminary class to whicli he belonged is given, tlie notice 
will be found in its proper place in the list of that class. 

As the naines of the men who have been elected Trustees, but have 
not served, have been published in previous Catalogues, it has been 
thought proper to retain them, but without statistics.
